11.5 skips down the ground and connects quite well. Except he has thumped it straight down long-off's throat. Chand was the man down there. Runs to his left and slides to pick up a good low catch. Some confusion over it though. He seems to have controlled the ball well, but then flicks it away towards the boundary a couple of seconds after it fell in his hands. But the umpires are happy with it 86/3
    1.1 leading edge pops up, Pollard gobbles it up at point. Back of a length delivery on middle, perhaps with a little shape away. Flick goes wrong for Sehwag 9/1
    4.3 caught at short third! The reverse sweep fails him this time! This was held back, and tossed up. Maxi got down on his knees, twisted his wrists around to swat the ball. Ends up with another top edge that is held quite nicely by Vinay. Ran to his left, dived and got two hands to it 38/2
    16.2 scoops a catch to cover! Moved away to leg to try and give himself some room, managed to shovel the ball up and has hit it quite hard as well. But he's picked out Rohit. The umpires are checking on if the catch was taken cleanly though. Everything is fine and off he goes 119/4
    18.4 they've gone for a greedy bye off a wide and it seems to be quite close. And Bailey's gone. It was a slower ball that skirted well past Saha's reach outside off. Swings, misses, sees his captain running and has to respond. But Parthiv has hit the stumps to put another nail in the Kings XI coffin 140/5
    19.6 yorker on the toes, flicked to deep square leg. Saha scurries for a second run, but he can't beat the incoming throw 149/7
    18.5 slower ball on middle, Axar is completely fooled. Goes for a swipe and is hit on the body. Saha calls his through for a single, but Malinga rushes forward, grabs the ball, turns around and nails the throw at the other end. Axar is well short 140/6
